Description of Job

Description of Job:

This is an exciting opportunity for a Worship Leader to play a key role in helping two churches, Christ Church, Brixton Road and St Matthews, Elephant and Castle, to grow and thrive. Our vision is to shape the liturgical worship with the same passion that we live our call to mission.   

This is why we are looking for someone to lead, from a catholic perspective, the music in our contemporary sacramental services. We want both English and Spanish congregations to thrive and grow, enjoying our services as encounters with God through sacrament, Word, beauty and social commitment. We value the traditional settings other churches have with their beautiful choral traditions, but we are looking for new ways to express our worship and faith. We are convinced that good worship music will help congregations to inhabit the liturgy more and will lead us also to growth,

This is a part-time position (3 days/21 hours per week) for a fixed term of 4.5 years. If you feel called to be part of this journey and have the necessary enthusiasm, skills and experience then we would be delighted to hear from you. Please send your CV and a covering letter to describing why you are interested in this role together with the gifts and skills you can bring to this role.

Christ Church Brixton Road, working in partnership with St Matthew’s, Elephant and Castle has been identified as one of the places in the Diocese of Southwark where there is a clear opportunity for growth. As the result of a successful bid by the Diocese of Southwark we have obtained the funding for this post from the Church of England’s Strategic Development Fund.

 We want to appoint a Bilingual Worship Leader to join the leadership team at the start of a new season and ensure we realise our vision enhancement of worship at Christ Church Brixton Road and St Matthew’s.
